Springfield VA-Sometimes You Can't See the Forest For the Trees

Cardinal Forest Homes in Springfield Virginia
If you are looking for a "forest" to live in and you still want to be able to commute to work at Fort Belvoir, NGA, the Pentagon, the Dulles Technology Corridor or anywhere in Washington DC then you might want to check out the "forests" in Springfield Virginia.

Okay that might have been a bit cheesy but the developers who built the numerous neighborhoods with "Forest" in their name did leave plenty of trees. Over the years they have continued to grow and provide each neighborhood a leafy canopy and beautiful displays of colors in our changing seasons.

 

 

Cardinal Forest Condominiums-Springfield VirginiaIs it Cardinal Forest, Newington Forest or Rolling Forest that catches your attention? Or perhaps you would prefer Danbury Forest, Leewood Forest or Monticello Forest? I'm sure you can see where this is going. In fact you can find at least 16 communities with "forest" in their name and there is a chance that I've missed one or two. What I haven't missed is watching most of these neighborhoods mature over the years and having owned a home in every zip code in Springfield, I've lived in my share of them too.

From the smallest community of Park Forest with only 13 townhouses to Cardinal Forest over 1000 condominims or Newington Forest with 1800 homes you can find communities of just about any size that you like. If you are looking for amenities you will find most neighborhoods have pools and tennis courts available.

As a Fairfax County resident you can also enjoy South Run Recreation Center, Burke Lake Park, Lake Accotink, Hidden Pond and dozens of community parks scatterd throughout the area. Springfield commuting options abound with the metro, VRE, commuter lots, bus lines and slug routes scattered throughout the area.

Cindy:  I have a new listing coming up in Cardinal Forest.  Never noticed until this post exactly how many neighborhoods in Springfield have Forest in the name.

Cindy, those subdivisions look like a great place to live.  Do the interstates still have this much forest?

The home sites are in a forest, wow what a setting for a home.

Good luck and success.

Lisa and Bob-thank you for stopping by.  I've had the good fortune of watching Springfield grow and mature for many years.

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) about 8 years ago

Lee and Pamela-thanks.  I'd live in a forest any day.

Michael-it is an area I called home for many years and still enjoy today.

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) about 8 years ago

Chris Ann-I look forward to seeing your new listing. 

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) about 8 years ago

Kay-unfortunately the interstates and the expansion of the roads have taken down many of the trees that used to be along the highways.  These neighborhoods are away from the highways so they still retain their wonderful foliage.

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) about 8 years ago

Lou-there is nothing nicer than mature trees to fill out a neighborhood.

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) about 8 years ago

Goodness, that IS a lot of communities with "forest" in their names.  Of course, I love the look - since that's a lot like Old Crofton.

Posted by Margaret Woda, Maryland Real Estate & Military Relocation (Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc.) about 8 years ago

Margaret-the older neighborhoods with trees have a lot of character.  And they give you plenty of exercise in the fall when you need to rake them :-)
